Benefits of a

CIBS Membership

Formed in 1992 out of the shared belief among the region’s leading brokers that the region needed a unified voice to advocate on behalf of professionalism, ethics and industry cohesion.

CIBS has helped upgrade the industry by offering hundreds of educational programs, seminars, and presentations; advocated professional standards and offered grievance resolution; provided informal mentoring relationships; raised tens of thousands of dollars for local charities; and created social settings in which colleagues have become friends, and competitors respected peers.


First and foremost is the industry connection CIBS affords brokers on Long Island. CIBS has successfully fostered a camaraderie among brokers that has won the praise of its broker and associate members as well as having proved useful in conducting business.


CIBS educational breakfast meetings are very well attended by CIBS members and guests because the interesting topics that are featured add value to the real estate community and related industries.


CIBS provides a forum for positive dialogue among members fostering a high level of cooperation and improving communications among the commercial real estate community.

Online Membership Directory

CIBS maintains an online membership directory. The CIBS directory lists each member alphabetically as well as by member business type. This allows a CIBS member to quickly locate another related real estate service provider should a client ask for help with other needs.


Every CIBS Member is required to accept the CIBS Code of Ethics and agree to mandatory Mediation using CIBS’ Mediation and Arbitration process. The CIBS alternate dispute resolution forum was designed by the brokers to resolve disputes in a streamlined and cost-effective manner. 


The ABLI/CIBS Annual Long Island Real Estate Dinner is held every April and is one of our most exciting real estate-related social events. This is the event where the Lifetime Achievement Award and the Most Ingenious Deal of the Year Award are presented. ABLI has also graciously included CIBS members among invited guests to its Annual December Holiday Party.


Other benefits of CIBS membership are its social aspects. Our Annual Golf Outing held during the spring, which raises money for charity, attracts golf lovers of every skill level. Our annual ‘Meet Your Associates Cocktail Reception’ is the event of the season you won’t want to miss. Each year CIBS has various other new social events that change from year to year.


One of the most special and satisfying endeavors is our annual participation in supporting local charities that benefit communities throughout both Nassau and Suffolk Counties.
